Analyzing Urban Space in Invisible Cities
           Dean Swinford, Fayetteville State University
ABSTRACT  
This essay describes an approach to teaching Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities 
that links study of the novel to current issues regarding urban development. 
The assignments featured help college students to understand and examine the 
characteristics of modernism and postmodernism. The essay links Calvino’s 
representation of the city to texts describing the design and social function 
of urban spaces.
